Evans Blue

Evans Blue – rock band, formed in Canada in 2005. Five musicians from three different groups are connected through a local music message board. The same message board has attracted the attention of producer Trevor Kustiak and his partner Mari Dew of the studio The Pocket Studios in Toronto, and together they started to work in March 2005. The band wrote and recorded their debut album “The Melody And The Energetic Nature Of Volume”, which was completed in November 2005 and released in February 2006, Hollywood Records. The first single “Cold (But I`m Still Here)”was broadcast on the radio a lot, as well as the song filmed a video clip. The debut record spent several weeks in the top 10 Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and spawned a second single -“Over”.

The group began their first major US tour in late March 2006 with Taproot. Since then, they have played with such renowned rock bands as Staind, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf and Breaking Benjamin. At the beginning of the tour their first drummer Darryl left the middle of the night without saying a word. Therefore, until a replacement is not found, the group had to act only with acoustic versions. New drummer became Danny D from Boston. The band continued their tour of the United States, and sometimes looking to Canada, speaking with groups such as Mobile, Hot Hot Heat, and Our Lady Peace.

Once a seven-month tour Evans Blue returned home, where they began work on their second album. Drummer Danny D also left the band and was replaced by Davis Howard.

In March 2007, the band was nominated for a Juno Award nomination for Best New Group.

The second album, entitled “The Pursuit Begins When This Portrayal of Life Ends”is published July 24, 2007. The first single from the forthcoming album,”The Pursuit”, debuted on May 21, and the radio plays on myspace groups. Currently, the group has updated its Web site, where you can see the cover of the second studio album, and watch two videos that talk about the making of the album.
